Paul Hastings hires M&A partner

Law firm Paul Hastings has added M&A partner Roger Barron to the firm’s team in London.

Barron has been a partner at Linklaters for more than 17 years.
“Roger has an outstanding market presence, with considerable experience and a formidable track record with a number of blue-chip clients,” says Seth Zachary, chair of Paul Hastings. “This significant appointment underlines our focus and commitment to accelerate the growth of our M&A practice in London, and enhance our offering to the firm’s global clients.”
“The London legal market is in a dynamic state and I believe that Paul Hastings is particularly well placed to offer clients a truly transatlantic service,” says Barron. “I look forward to working with the team in London and across the firm.”
Barron is a specialist in corporate law, with a particular focus on mergers and acquisitions, demergers and reorganisations and corporate finance. He has a wide range of sector expertise, including energy, utilities, media, and telecoms. He is a key boardroom adviser to a number of FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 clients. Barron is featured in The Lawyer’s Hot 100 2018 and in 2017 collected a Financial Times Innovative Lawyers Award and the British Legal Award for M&A.
